I can't figure out my syntax error, and every time I write code my help button won't work. sorry :(.
NSMutableDictionary *carDict; carDict=[NSDictionary alloc]; [carDict initWithObjectsAndKey: @"Make":@"Honda", @"Model":@"Accord"; nil];

There are a few things going on with your code that should be changed. First, the challenge asks you to write it all in one line of code. Second, the message you are passing to NSMutableDictionary has a typo in it
// Change this initWithObjectsAndKey: // To this initWithObjectsAndKeys:
Third, the structure of your values and keys are mixed up and you are also using colons where you shouldn't be for this init method. Here is an example from the Apple documentation on how to write this kind of initializer
NSDictionary *dict = [[NSDictionary alloc] initWithObjectsAndKeys: @"value1", @"key1", @"value2", @"key2", nil];
If you look at the order of your values and keys compared to this example, you should see that yours are backwards
// Your dictionary @"Make":@"Honda", @"Model":@"Accord" // Documentation example dictionary @"value1", @"key1", @"value2", @"key2"
Now, if we put this all together, you should have something like this
NSMutableDictionary *carDict = [[NSMutableDictionary alloc] initWithObjectsAndKeys: @"Honda", @"Make", @"Accord", @"Model", nil];
Hope this was helpful for you. Be sure to always refer to the Apple Documentation :)
